Matt Samolis, bowed cymbals/harmonic drone offering
Meditative acoustic drone practice offered by Matt Samolis
Matt Samolis’s offerings on the ‘modified Bow Chime’ are a masterful blend of the harmonic and drone traditions. The highly resonant Bow Chime issues powerful acoustic energy that amplifies the harmonic activity of the bowed cymbals, producing a compass of tranquil, otherworldly sounds.
Ben Eidson is a saxophonist and computer musician who currently lives on Boston, MA. He regularly plays in various groups throughout the North East on both laptop and saxophone.

Originally from Memphis, double bassist Diego Martinez has utilized their extensive background as a classical performer to inform their improvisational language. While they have played in orchestras under prolific conductors such as Andrew Crust, Hugh Wolff, JoAnn Falletta, and the late Larry Rachleff, they have more recently been discovering their creative voice within free music, through their on-and-off study with local legend Joe Morris as well as their own exploration of sound on an instrument that they consider to have limitless sonic possibilities. Influenced by drone music, as well as American free jazz musicians such as John Coltrane, Cecil Taylor, Charlie Haden, and Pharoah Sanders; Diego seeks to expand the vocabulary of the double bass in a context of complete creative freedom that acknowledges the tradition of innovation within radical musical movements throughout history.

Can you please confirm I am registered for tonight’s Sound Scapes? I am pretty certain I registered when it was first announced but cannot find any e-mail conformation.My name is John Bechard.
It looks like this events page is the public facing page for the event on 4/22/23:
It would be good if you could the address of the event, and if reservations are required, some mention of it, and some button to click to sign up. The venue is almost impossible to find from the address alone, and it’s almost impossible to find the address on the somartspace.org website. I had to google it last night to find it. It might also be a good idea to put up a Google street view and mention that “There is no sign for the venue. Enter to the left of Bliss Nails.” The place is almost impossible to find in the real world even if you have the address.
